    I must admit I take ours every time we go and the only other person I have spoken to is Griff on a couple of occasions.

    Syndicate Enquires

    Admiral Our shares work out costing us just under £400 for each allocated week(plus diesel and pumpouts) and we have (in the last six months) had three extra weeks as well which have only cost us D & P. Yes there is the initial purchase price as well but that is hard to quantify as unless both boats get beamed up by aliens they will always have a value. Steve

    Syndicate Enquires

    My advice would echo Alan's, I would also add go for a boat with more berths than you think you might need. Think about all the issues you may face as you get older, less mobility etc. and also where you want to go. There are a few of us on here in the Thunder and Moonlight Shadow syndicates so any questions just ask away.

    Village Life

    I've only lived in a small village once, for about six months. No shops, a handful of houses and a pub which luckily was right next door to me. One Sunday morning I woke up about 11.00 and I'd run out of cigs, knowing the landlord would be about I wandered into the pub about 11.20 in my dressing gown to get some cigs from the machine before they opened (a regular occurrence), I walked in to a bar full of people, the clocks had changed overnight. Doh!

    A Winters Tale

    Those two are the gentlest swans I've met when taking food from your hand. They even got used to the dogs peering over the stern at them while they were being fed. And they certainly have us lot well trained. Tap, tap tap "Got any bread?" Steve

    Syndicates, Thoughts

    I know a few syndicates have gone the managed to self-managed route but have any ever gone the other way?

    First Christmas Afloat.

    Slightly out of sequence but Christmas dinner at the New Inn, Rockland St Mary was absolutely superb. We've always enjoyed the food there but this time they really pulled out all the stops. After dinner it was back to MS for forty-winks and then the pub in the evening for a couple. After an early night we set off for Brundall in the morning. Les was going by car (Debs had to work Christmas eve and had driven to Rockland) and Debs and I were on the boat. Debs was at the helm and tried to get me to take over as we approached the mooring but I wouldn't let her. It was perfect conditions, virtually slack water and no wind and she got us onto the mooring without any problems.Debs car was there but no sign of Les, a quick Whatsapp and problem solved, he was in the Yare having a 'coffee' (yeah right!) so we went to join him. Debs commented that the dogs seemed to know where we were going, well after 10 days up here with me they should have known lol. Then it was back to the boat for lunch (pic above) Today we off to see my Mum and Dad in Holt this afternoon, taking two cars so Debs will leave for home from there as she is working tomorrow, then Les and I are staying until Saturday which will give me a chance to fit the last three LED light fittings and fill up with diesel and pump out Saturday morning. We then have a month until we are up here again for a week on Thunder :)

    Fray Bentos pies are the dogs doo-dahs. Another guilty-pleasure is instant mash. I love the stuff. Is this the place to admit liking Pot Noodles as well? Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
